If you check PKGBUILDs, you'll notice that they are exactly that same
extensions - that same "url" und "source". Just django-extensions' PKGBUILD
is better and more complex, but django-command-extensions' name is more
accurate in compare to homesite. In that situations some kind of redirects
would be useful - one pkgname could be just alias for second and users
wouldn't have problems.
